Artas®  Robotic Hair Transplant is the groundbreaking hair restoration method that stimulates the growth of the patient’s own natural hair follicles. This cutting edge robotic hair restoration technique takes healthy hair follicles from thicker areas of hair and uses them as donors,  transplanting them into areas with thinning hair to encourage thicker, healthier regrowth. 

California Hair, MD is the first and only practice in Orange County and San Diego counties offering the latest robotic device, the Artas i-X.

Is your doctor board-certified?

One of the most important questions to ask when finding the right doctor is whether or not they are board certified. We encourage every patient to visit certificationmatters.org to confirm the status of any doctor they are investigating. 

Certificationmatters.org is promoted by the American Board of Medical Specialties
